Excited to see "Big Lonely Doug", Canada's second largest Douglas-fir, featured in the May/June 2014 issue of Canadian Wildlife Magazine. That's me standing beside it for scale! I had noticed the giant tree standing alone in an old-growth clearcut near Port Renfrew a couple of years ago but only recently, during a trip to officially measure it, was its record size revealed. Now it's famous, albeit still alone..
Big Lonely Doug dimensions:
- Height: 70.2 meters or 230 feet
- Circumference: 11.91 meters or 39 feet
- Diameter: 3.91 meters or 12.4 feet
- Canopy Spread: 18.33 meters or 60.1 feet
